credited. Washington, Feb. 13. "Has Cleveland
gone outside of party lines to select the
chief of his political family fn is the ques
tion which is agitating to a greater or less
degree the Democratic statesmen at the
national capital. Most of- them have con
cluded that the report that is asserted
with.so much confidence to be Itroe, and
that neither the president-elect, any of his
advisers nor Judge Gresham will deny,
must be correct and they ire trying to be

Illinois says: "It is too bad." Most cf the
other members of the Illinois delegation
have taken occasion to reflect, and those
who have not already wired Judge Gresh

the selection a most appropriate and happy
No Republican Is Safe.
An incident that occurred in the house
Saturday expresses the feeling of a good
many Democrats over tha alleged selection.
During the debate on the pension bill
Grout interrupted Livingston, starting
with the word "If" when Livingston
broke in with "The heavens may fall. Are
yon willing to go into Mr. Cleveland's
cabinet? What do you think of tii.it?"
Loud laughter, to which Grout pleasairiy
contributed. Said Fellows (sot to vm-et to

Other Places Said To He Filled.
Three places now appear to be filled lv
yond question. Carlisle is to he secret a ry
of the treasury, of course, and it is gen
erally conceded that Daniel Lamont, of
New York, will be the secretary of war.
For secretary of the navy Mr. Herbert, of
Alabama, who has long been chairman of
the house committee on naval affairs,
seems to be a general favorite, though he
says he la not a candidate, and declares
that be has received no intimation from
Any authoritative source that his name is

Friends of Hoke Smith.the Atlanta (Ga.)
editor, state quite positively that he is as
much of a certainty for secretary of the
interior an Carlisle is for the treasury and
t hat there is no longer any room for doubt.
Smith having been offered . and finally ac
cepted the portfolio. If that be true,
Blount, of Georgia, can no longer be re
garded as a possibility for postmaster gen

he is so eminently fitted by his long experi
ence as a member of the house committee
on postoffices and postroads. According
to the slatemakers only one cabinet place
is in doubt, and that is secretary of
Resolution of a MNsnnri Solon.
A telegram from Jefferson City says that
a resolution has been introduced in the
Missouri legislature which, after comment
ing on the extraordinary nature of the al

manner, resolves: "That this house de

CAR COUPLER BILL PASSED.
The Senate Pnts It Through by a Vote
of SO to lO.
Washington. Feb. 13. The biil com
pelling railway companies to equip their
cars with automatic couplers aud contin
uous brakes passed the senate Saturday,
the vote standing 39 yeas to 10 nays the lat
ter being Blodgett, Brice, Daniel, George,
Gorman, Harris, Morgan, Sawyer, Stewart,
Bnd Vance, The bill makes it unlawful
after Jan. 1, 18!ts, for railways to run trains
not equipped from locomotive to rear car
with brakes controlled from the locomo
tive, dT with automatic conplers, and after
July 1, 1895, each car must also be equipped
with "grab irons."
Standard Height of Drawbars.
The American Railway association is au
thorized to designate to the interstate com
mission a standard height for drawbars for
freight cars for each guage in use in this
country, and this must be done within
ninety days from passage of act; and if
said association fails of this duty the inter
state commission shall decide the question
before July 1, 1814, and then give notice of
same to the railway companies, who must
make their cars to conform thereto by July
1, 1895. The penalty for failing to comply
with the law is $ 100 for each violation, the
execution of the law being lodged with the
interstate commission, which also has the
right to extend the period for compliance
with the law.
Liability for Employes Injuries.
The last paragraph of the bill is as
follows: "Any employe of any such com
mon carrier who may be injured by any
locomotive, car, or train in use contrary to
the provisions of this act shall not be deemed
thereby to have assumed the risk there
by occasioned, although continuing in the
employment of such carrier after the un
lawful use of such locomotive, car, or train
had been brought to his knowledge."
PROGRESS OF THE HAWAII MATTER.
The President and Secretary Foster Give
the Annexers Audieuce.
Washington, Feb. 13. The Hawaii an
nexers called on the president yesterday.
What was done is not known, but the an
nexers look upon the visit as a formal rec
ognition of them as envoys from a govern
ment. Later they bad an interview with
Secretary Foster, and it is stated that sub
stantial progress was mad? toward an
agreement lor annexation. It is said that
most all the points were incorporated in
the text of protocols.
Formal Recognition This Week.
But it is probable that the interview with
the president was informal and carried no
recognition of an official character with it.
The date of official adjournment of the
conferences will probably depend upon the
arrival of the repre.4tntativesof the deposed
queen. The conditions all point to this
reek as the earliest time when a formal
ttuciusion of the matter by the state de
partment officials may be looked for. In
ease annexation of the islands be recom
mended by the executive the method of
accomplishing it remains to be decided.
Alleged Triple Alliance.
Washington, Feb. 13. It was tele
graphed to a New York paper from here
Saturday night that the United States,
Russia and France had agreed to a triple
alliance offensive and defensive against the
world, and that thisscbeme had been pend
ing for six years. It is claimed that the
extradition treaty with Russia was really
this alliance treaty. There is no confirm
ation of the report. It is denied by offi
cials that there is any provision in the Rus
sian treaty differing materially with that

The conference report on the fortification

day, an attempt to limit the talk being suc

Washington-, Feb. 13. The treasury de
partment exhibit at the World's fair will
consist in part of the portraits of the thirty-eight
secretaries of the treasury, begin
ning with Alexander Hamilton in 1789, and

Congress Will Have to Hnxtle.
Washington, Feb. 13. But sixteen

SEVEN CRUSHED TO DEATH.
Fatal Accident at a Stone Quarry la
Rutland, Vt., Feb. 13. One of the worst
disasters iu the history of marble quarry
ing occurred at West Rutland a little after
1 o'clock Saturday afternoon in a quarry
operated by the Vermont Marble company,
with which Senator Proctor is connected.
A great mass of stone fell into the quarry
and seven men were instantly killed and
a number of others injured. The victims
were crushed so that some could not be
recognized. The men were at work chan
neling and taking away refuse, and were
all of middle age. The killed are; Will
iam Lukas, Frank Sulig, EJward Powers,
Alexander Blumquest, and three unrecog
Nine Other Men Wounded.
The Injured are: James Dooley, leg
broken; John Dunn, slightly injured;
Charles Anderson, slightly injured; Fred
Marchand, arm broken; Anton Ractio,
slightly injured: John C. Anderson, slightly
injured; Peter Grenier, slightly injured;
John Michan, slightly injured about the
head; Michael Cupps, slightly injured. As
soon as the accident happened the electric
danger signal was rung in at the company's
offices, and the mills and work everywhere
was stopped at once. All the doctors in
West Rutland and Rutland were called by
telephone, and responded quickly. Scores
of men were also sent down into the quarry.
Soon the news spread to the streets, and
hundreds of men, women and children
hurried to the quarry.
Relatives Frantic With Grief.
People from Rutland and Pittsfield be
gan to arrive and by 5 o'clock the vicinity
of the quarry was crowded. In the crowd
were many relatives of the dead or injured
men and they were frantic with grief. The
quarry was opened in 18a Depth and sur
face considered it is the largest quarry in
the wurld. It perpendicular depth is over
250 feet and from this the quarry runs east
ward and downward under the hill 300
feet or more. The accident was near the
extreme end of the quarry, far under the
hilL The killed and some of the injured
were buried under tons of rock and the
work of rescue was necessarily difficult.
Jack Frost Caused tha Accident.
The cause of the caving in of the quarry
is not positively known. The mass of stone
which covered the men who were at work
close by was, as near as can be estimated,
sixty feet in length and twenty feet wide.
It fell without the least warning and all
who were at work there were at once cov
ered. E. B. Morse, treasurer of the Ver
mont Marble company, says the cause of
the accident is not certain, though the
"scale," or part of the roof that fell, was
probably loosened by freezing. There were
about eighty men at work in the quarry.
